Mike Tomlin started the process of adding new blood to his 2019 coaching staff on Friday with the hiring of a local product that played at Pitt.

The Steelers announced today the hiring of veteran NFL assistant coach Teryl Austin as senior defensive assistant/secondary.

Austin is a native of Sharon, Pa., and a former four-year letterman and three-year starter at Pitt. Last season, Austin was defensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals before being fired mid-season by Marvin Lewis. In total, Austin has 15 years of NFL coaching experience, including stops as defensive coordinator with Detroit (2014-17) and secondary coach with Baltimore Ravens (2011-13), Arizona Cardinals (2007-09) and the Seattle Seahawks (2003-06).
